The Prophet has much more suspension then the Rush, perferrably making it more useful for techincal terrain and jumps.

The Rush is the replacement model for the Scalpel and is more suited to XC riding and racing. The Prophet is an all mountain bike that can be used for XC but is also suitable for jumping and downhill. I have a Prophet and simply love it. The suspension is compliant without being mushy and with 140mm of travel it soaks up everything I can throw at it.

The guy that I ride with owns a shop and he rides a Rush over the same terrain so it's a very capable bike as well. I seem to remember him telling me that the Rush had a bit more flex in it than the Prophet but I couldn't feel any real difference in the ride when I tried it. Either way, you can't lose picking one of those bikes.

I dont think it is, they are very different bikes, and they still produced both models for the 06 line.
